Nondestructive Ultrasonic Equipment for Hazardous Environments

As well as being Intrinsically Safe, the Cygnus 1 UT equipment is highly ruggedized and designed for use in harsh environments. Examples of such areas include:

  • Inside storage tanks (on land or at sea)
  • Oil and gas production facilities
  • Chemical plants
  • Mining
  • Dry, dusty environments where ignition could occur
  • Fuel depots
  • Grain processing plants
  • Any other potentially explosive atmospheres

Cygnus has the world’s only Multiple Echo NDT ultrasonic thickness meter that is certified for use in these hazardous environments to Class 1, Div 1.

The Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe thickness gauge is certified to:
